It’s Pajama Time!

I’m able to tell you all about some of Gaby’s favorite pajamas thanks to Joe Boxer and Kmart for sponsoring this post.

I love winter. No, I mean I really love winter. I know I complain a lot about icy front walkways and slippery roads and my utter paranoia about slipping and falling, but when it comes to the seasons, next to Autumn, I love winter. Nothing says “Let’s get comfy-cozy” and “It’s pajama time“, like watching big, fat, fluffy snowflakes falling from the sky, and cuddling with my daughter while we watch it snow. While we’ve only just started a pajama tradition on Christmas Eve, our usual tradition is to head out the first day of December and buy the comfiest, coziest, and sometimes the silliest pajamas we can find. So, Gaby and I went out in search of one of her favorite fun brands . . . Joe Boxer, available at Kmart!

It's Pajama Time

We all know, based on past proof, that Gaby tends to be silly, and loves to have fun! With designs that include Moostache, Time to Get Elf’d Up, Ugly Xmas Pants, and Naughty is the New Nice, as well as hundreds of other silly, hilarious, and playful designs, Joe Boxer is pretty much the epitome of fun! Joe Boxer, available at Kmart, has one of the largest collections of awesome holidays pajamas that I’ve ever seen! Seriously, you have got to get over to Kmart and check them out. You’ll find prints and patterns of all kinds including cupcakes, animals, camo, traditional holiday plaid, and of course Mr. Winky and Mr. Licky.

Gaby’s favorite jammies are footies. She swears that when she leaves for college, she’s taking footed jammies with her, which is great because Joe Boxer even has fooies in adult sizes. Yes, I said adult footed jammies! Gaby’s favorite this year are the hooded jammies. However the pair she has on in the above image, aren’t footies, it’s a super-comfy hooded animal lounger which she’s in love with!  But hey, no footies?  Well, no problem because Joe Boxer, available Kmart,  has got that covered. Well, got her feet covered! Check out these adorable slippers that she just couldn’t resist pairing with her super-cute jammies.

It's Pajama Time

If we’re not snuggling as it snows, then Gaby’s second favorite thing to do, is get her jammies on and settle into a good book. She stays snuggly warm in her adorable pajamas from Joe Boxer available at Kmart. She looks pretty stinkin’ cute as well, if you ask me! That hoodie is awesome!

It's Pajama Time

Mornings, which are admittedly Gaby’s least favorite time of day (“Mommmmmm, why can’t school start at like, noon, instead of soooooo early?), are still super-cute and fun when she’s all wrapped up in her Joe Boxer robe. Who can be a grumpy grouch with that darling little monkey smiling at them?

It's Pajama Time

I can’t wait to see what kind of jammies her Christmas Elf leaves for Gaby, as he departs to head back to the North Pole, on Christmas Eve. He’s got a wicked-fun sense of humor, so there’s little doubt he’ll stuff her stocking with more adorable, cozy Joe Boxer pajamas available at Kmart!

If the pajamas weren’t already enough to make you smile, then the uproariously hilarious way these guys play “Jingle Bells” will have you laughing for sure!


Maybe “Santa Baby” is more your style?

Does your family have a Christmas Eve pajama tradition, and do you love cozy, comfy jammies as much as we do?

Crazy-Clever Candy Christmas Ornaments

Banner for candy ornament post

Over the past couple of years I've seen the photos of the holiday platters made out of those red and white Starlite peppermints.  It's amazing how simple they are because all you have to do is unwrap about a bazillion of those little mints, pop them in the oven, melt them all together and voila! You have yourself an adorable, edible platter you can … Continue reading

Eight Tips for a Great Ski or Snowboard Season

Ten Tips

Mother Nature decided to play Santa this year and gifted us with an early and generous snowfall in much of upstate NY. You know what that means for families like mine who have an avid snow-sports enthusiast on their hands? GET OUTSIDE AND ON THE SLOPES RIGHT NOW!

Weight and See – Standing Still

Family photo at Mount Greylock UTO

The term, "Weight and See" has never been more apropos than it is as I sit here and write this.  When it comes to my weight, I've pretty much just been sitting around with a "Wait and See" mentality. Let's just wait, and the weight will just fall off!  Ha! To be bluntly honest, I pretty much gave up back in mid-July after I was put back on a … Continue reading

I love Christmas, I really do. I just don't like Christmas trees.  Why? Well, I have two very good reasons. Two very furry reasons.   So, you can understand my hesitance to put up our Christmas tree. I'm pretty sure, once it's up, It's going to come right back down! Gizmo, our newest addition, at almost 8 months old now, has also … Continue reading

Little Kids and Public Restrooms

The other day Gaby and I were out shopping and she let me know that maybe I was right about having drank an entire 20 ounce bottle of water right before we left the house . . . she should have used the bathroom at home before we left! Neither of us like using public restrooms, but not just for the obvious (and gross) reasons, but because up until … Continue reading

Are Kids Getting Meaner?


  Like many of you, I recently saw the story about a *mother who shaved her daughter's head, shaved it almost completely bald, in order to punish her for letting her hair get to the point that there was something she called a "rat's nest" of tangles in it. For the most part, people responded in shock and horror at the punishment and shaming the … Continue reading

I can't believe Christmas is less than two months away. Less than two months.  Let that sink in for just a moment. Weren't we just all talking about how everything gets coated, dipped in and covered with pumpkin spice from late August until the New Year, and then discussing how much Halloween candy our kids got?  Now we're staring … Continue reading

November is Prematurity Awareness Month®

Blogger Baby's Second Sonogram 7-25-05

It was June of 2005 and my folder at my OB-GYN's office had a big purple sticker on it with the letters, "AMA."  I asked the nurse who was doing my prenatal screening for my initial visit with my OB-GYN, what it meant. "Advanced Maternal Age." Ouch. That stung just a little bit. I didn't exactly consider myself of an "Advanced Maternal Age" … Continue reading
